Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer
Need to open the door, overloaded machine stopped midcycle and will not release.
Where is the emergency cord?
i have been told many times it is in the dispenser drawer. I have taken it out and the compartment is sealed in this model.
Thats a good one, lookin up the service manual, it appears that your particular model has a manual release on hte lower section of hte latch assembly itself, and the only way to gain access to it, is to open the door boot/bellow, but obviously with the door locked that's not going to happen, i would try to gain access from underneath but by the looks of it that to is also closed off (solid bottom). id does show a model with a separate access panel(lower 1/4 of front of machine) however i am to assume that your unit has 1 solid front panel no access to remove.sorry i couldnt have better news. And the "pull" in the dispenser is no tere previous neptune frontloaders not pertaining to your machine at all!

If you need to stop or interrupt a program after you start the machine, turn the Program Control knob
to 10 (Drain). Any water in the machine will be pumped out and you can then press the Door Open
button ( ) to open the door. To restart the washer, close the door and turn the controls to the desired
On the electronic control models, if you need to open the glass door during a wash or rinse cycle, press and hold the Door Open button for three seconds. The machine will stop and automatically drain enough water so the door can be opened safely. The program will resume when you close the door. The inlet valve will come on to
ensure the proper water level.
In case of mechanical failure, you can use the Emergency Door Opener located by the drain pump. To use the Emergency Door Opener, remove the screw holding the cord handle (loop) and pull the cord down.
Hope this answers your question even if it isn't necessarily the answer you wanted. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
